Good afternoon everyone, Chiya signing on.
It’s a strange experience for me here as I’m actually writing this post almost a week in advance of it being posted. After having spoken to Duki we decided to leave this post pending a while so that it wasn’t thought of an April Fools joke.
You know the drill, read on.
Welcome back! So, how do you feel about making a difference? I understand that there’s Children in Need and Red Nose Day and a whole host of other charities that you may already donate to. Then again, perhaps you don’t. I’m not one to judge.
I personally refuse to donate to such things due to the stupid amount of money getting diverted to line pockets of middlemen and country leaders. [Personal opinion]
Recently, I came across a website which can REALLY make a difference. Better yet, it makes a difference to the people that are important to the future of our planet as they’re actively trying to improve their lives and not be filthy leechers. You could say that they’re genuine seeders but with poor internet and in need of support.
Right, so the purpose of this post is to persuade you to go to Kiva and potentially donate some money.
In short, they enable other companies to give micro-loans to people in poorer circumstances than yourself.
As it’s a loan, you also get your money back periodically over time. Although as with anything else, if the borrower doesn’t repay, you wouldn’t get your money back.
But I’d ask you to consider it a donation. Put your money into the site and KEEP it there. It doesn’t have to be that much you put in as anything helps. If you’re not able to do the full $25 alone then message me and we can come to an arrangement to group some money together with others.
Duki has kindly agreed that BBT will give a few perks for people who decide to take part. Once you’ve given me confirmation that you’ve entered money into the system, preferably by screenshot, then you will receive rewards.
Please note that this is NOT a way to boost your ratio, think of instead that it’s a way to boost your karma. The perks will not be related to tracker gains of bonus upload or points etc, but will be e-peen related. You may receive things such as tracker/forum titles, badges and other fun and interesting things which make you better than people who are not taking part.
Thanks for reading and considering it. If you have any questions then just leave em down in the comments.
Here’s a video which clearly and easily explains what Kiva does:
